PARENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you! The right match can help you reduce stress, find friends and connect with the OLGC Parish School community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Parents are required to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours per school year. Log your hours at Gradelink’s website or on their mobile app.
IS THERE MORE TO LIFE?
During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple. Questions might include–Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?
Alpha is for everyone –no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
RETREATS FOR PARENTS
OLGC Parish School is committed to offering a life-changing encounter with Jesus, and every year we want to bless our moms and dads with an incredible opportunity to encounter the Lord through a retreat experience.
Here is what past attendees had to say:
“I have never before been in the presence of Jesus for such a long time. This was an amazing experience.”
“The prayer ministers that came were a true blessing to me where I am in my life right now.”
“This was a wonderful experience and so very needed for me at this time.”
There were many grace-filled moments during the dads' retreat. The theme of he retreat was Defending Your Faith and Family. The weekend focused on their identity as God's sons and how that is the foundation to what it means to be a father. Our dads left the retreat with practical tools to take authority over their homes and families.
Here’s what one dad had to say about the retreat:
“Those who presented made it very personal and real so it was easy to relate to what they were presenting, and it was easy to understand the message God was delivering. The length of the retreat was perfect! Having the opportunity to be in Adoration during some hours at night and for the start the day on Saturday was a powerful experience. I also liked the fact that I was among other men in very similar circumstances (OLGC dads) as we share, in some level, the same big desire: to better fulfill our mission of being the best dads God has created us to be for our children.”
